 GAME RULES FOR FAMILY AND STAFF 

 

 

 

 

HI ALL--I THINK IT WOULD BE A VERY GOOD THING TO START SAYING RULES AND 
SETTINGS BEFORE WE DO OUR TOURNEYS. ANOTHER SUGGESTION IS TO PUT RULES ON YOUR 
TOURNEY PAGE,AND THEN AT BEGINNING OF TOURNEY YOU COULD ASK IF ANY ONE HAS ANY 
QUESTIONS ABOUT RULES.  IF ANYONE DOES NOT KNOW HOW TO PUT RULES ON YOUR 
TOURNEY PAGE, YOU CAN CHECK WITH VAMP OR KAS AND WE WILL GLADLY HELP YOU.  I 
THINK FROM NOW ON WE EITHER SAY THE RULES BEFORE THE TOURNEY OR MAKE SURE THEY 
ARE ON OUR PAGE.  EITHER WAY WILL WORK.  THIS MIGHT HELP SOLVE ANY DISPUTES OR 
PROBLEMS THAT MAY COME UP IN THE FUTURE. 

 

 

WE HAVE A THREE STRIKES AND YOU ARE OUT POLICY.  IF YOU ARE DISRUPTIVE IN TOURS AND CAN NOT BEHAVE IN AN ADULT MANNER YOUR ACTIONS WILL BE HANDLED AS FOLLOWS:

 

FIRST OFFENSE:  A WARNING

SECOND OFFENSE: YOU WILL BE BOXED

THIRD OFFENSE YOU WILL BE BOXED OR BANNED FROM THE LEAGUE DEPENDING ON THE DECISION OF THE HA AND CO-HA OF THE LEAGUE 

 

DO NOT  change any of these rules without  approval from KAS or Vampie (only exception is when you run a twisted rules tournament)  !!

HOST RULES 

 


Welcome and thank you for your interest in wanting to become a host for Friends2Friends

To host for Friends2Friends you must be an active member for a minimum of 30 days and at least play in 20 tournaments. This will give us a chance to get to know you and you will have a chance to get to know us. Please submit your TD application and please be patient. We will get back to you. Thank you!


If you have any questions or concerns please contact Kas or Vampie.

 

HOST RULES 

 

">YOU MUST HOST AT LEAST TWO TOURNAMENTS A WEEK

If this requirement is not met for a week you will receive a warning letter

Two weeks of not hosting will result in your removal from staff. 

 

 


All disputes should NEVER take place in Pogo Rooms or the league page shout box.  Doing so could lead to being boxed or banned. Any problems should be handled at a Private table, in Private Chat, or on IM, NO EXCEPTIONS.

Please maintain a professional attitude. Remember, when hosting you are representing our league and Cases. We believe you will all take this seriously.

Remember that there are other Pogo paying members in the room we may be hosting in and everyone can see everything you say. So please be considerate of others.

 

.THE PERSON HOSTING IS IN CHARGE OF THEIR TOURNAMENT If you do not agree with the way they run things, please contact that host AFTER the tournament.

 

DO NOT take over someone elses tourney unless asked to do so!  Only exception is if a host is a no show and you are subbing.  

We are a TEAM, and we expect everyone to do their best in getting along with one another and follow these simple rules, so that we may keep our gaming experience FUN!


 

Some games need extra time.   Please allow  two hours  for full canasta, spades  gin,  pino, and special tournaments as necessary. 

 

 

  IF YOU MUST MOVE A TOURNAMENT PLEASE LET SOMEONE ELSE ON THE STAFF KNOW YOU ARE DOING SO!

 

Work together, play in each otheers tours even if you don't get along.  Put aside personal differences for the good of our league.  

No one should ever feel pressured about hosting or playing. 

 

 Added August 27, 2015....

 

1.  Host should be in room 15 minutes before start of tourney unless he/she is in a previous tourney running late.  Players need to be there in room 5 minutes before start.  I will be sending something to members also.  Our tourneys need to start being as close to start time as possible.  If you have players running late that are faithful but may be running late cause of internet, kids, etc. do not take out.   Wait 5 minutes and then begin but leave them in first round.  If you have not heard anything from a player, not online, was not in previous tourney reg  for, then chances are they will not show for yours.  Take them out. 
 
2.  I am tired of the abuse some of our players and hosts are undergoing in tourneys.  This needs to stop.  If someone is causing you problems in a tourney, please let vamp or me know.  We will definitely do something about it.  You can not run a tourney with distractions from players cause they want to argue with you or they have a neg. comment to make.  We all do this free of charge and for everyone to have fun.. 
 
3.  If you are around or a host doesn't show and you are in a tourney, step up and do the tourney.  Please do not wait for the host to show.  Go ahead and take it over.
 
4.  Please do not move a tourney without first asking someone to do it for you.  If you need someone to do your tourney cause something came up, spam or call first to see about it.  Then if no response, move it.
 
5.  If you have enough players in your tourney, there is no need to spam.  If you do need more players, please wait until 10 til.  This will give players time to reg . and get to the tourney. 
 
6.  Full canasta games should be 2 rounds,true swiss.   Allow 2 hours for this. If anyone ever wants to set a partner canasta, please let me know.  I will give you a room to use.  Quickie canasta should be not more than 3 rounds true swiss and can be done in an hour.  Table settings for these are on the lg page.
 
7.  Pinochle pls set for 250, spades for 500.  Allow 2 hours for these games also.  We are giving this a try with playing games out until we have winners but we are limiting rounds to 30 minutes each.  If you are hosting, when 5 minutes left, please announce only 5 minutes.  If they are on last hand, please let them finish but that is it.  At end of 30 minutes if game is not finished, person or persons with high score win that round.  We can not have games going longer than 2 hours.  If this doesn't work, we will have to limit pinochle and spades to only 2 rounds like canasta.  Also, we have no more random partners when doing these.  Set these up where they can choose their own partners.  This comes from our players.  They want to choose their own partner which I am sure all can understand.   Table settings for these are on lg. page.
 
8.  Gin games in the evenings are definitely 2 hours.  If setting gin, please limit it to 3 rounds true swiss.  If it is a special game like staff vs family where a def. winner needs to be announced, then you need to play it out and probably not true swiss.   Any other time though, let's make gin 3 rounds true swiss like TOC. 
 
9.  Also, please do not set games for 5 rounds unless they are special games.   Usually 3 rounds are definitely enough for our players.  Any more than 3, they usually get bored.  I know someone is going to read this and say , well kas sets dcr in mornings for 5 rounds.  I started this a long time ago.   There is usually nothing else going on in mornings.  Also, Cindy usually sets her golf for 4 rounds on weekends.  This is because there is usually not much happening on weekends.
 
10.  Most of you are avoiding the byes in your tourneys.  Sometimes it happens.  Maybe you have a large number in your tourney, someone reg. late, etc.  If you can avoid a bye, please do..  This is especially true with card games.  Nothing worse as all know than sitting there during a card game.  Also,  If you do have a bye, please don't give it to the same person during a game.
 
11.  We need to remember to advertise during our tourneys if we have nonmembers in room.  This sometimes is only way we get new members.  If you are hosting and don't feel comfy doing it, ask someone else to do for you.
 
12.  Please start charging 150 buxxx for reg. games and 200 for specials.  With the plus lg., we can get more buxxx . 
 
13.  If you are around during day, weekends, please set if you can.  We especially need people during day on weekends and Saturday night.  I know you all work so hard during week to make our lg. run and believe me I really appreciate all of you. 
 

14.  Blue lines--All of us hate the blues, but we need to try and make sure that players do not play one another over and over again.  If you check cases, they will agree with this that players should not play one another if it can be avoided.  If you are not sure how to switch players around, please ask.  We will be happy to help you.  


Thank you,
The Friends2Friends Admin Team
